this lame duck congress needs to address before the end of the year and even though the tax increases are going to take effect in 36 days, there's still only talk of a compromise, so can congress actually walk the walk or are we going to go off this cliff? up next, mike lee of utah. really appreciate you taking the time. you wrote an op-ed in the washington times and said quote, delaying significant fiscal restraint will send the wrong signal and may serve as taping point for our economy. so you're fear is that interest rates could surge. to be father, we've had this disastrous situation for years and interest rates have kept falling in spite of all worries that there would be a disaster. >> that's right. that's one of the things that distinguishes the fiscal cliff, which we're coming up against right now. from what i described yesterday says the fiscal avalanche. we can see when the fiscal cliff is about to hit. the avalanche occurs when people stop buying u.s. treasury instruments and we have to start raising the interest rate. eventually, we get to the point where we can't afford a
back on the grover norquist tax pledge. is the gop preparing to give in to the president? is and thousands of people packing into stores today. watch your wallet. we'll tell you how the shopping season is really adding up. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening. i'm tom foreman. egypt erupts. thousands of angry egyptians have been protesting in opposition to a controversial power grabby egypt's president. at least 80 people have been injured and one killed in clashes with police who fired tear gas into the crowds. the unrest began after he issued a series of orders which allow him to run the country unchecked until a new constitution is written. morsi says his actions are meant to speed up reform and achieve political and social stability. >> translator: i have said beforened i repeat again, that i would never use a legislation against individuals, parties, men, women or muslims or christians for personal gains and to settle scores. >> now, this is all very problematic for the white house. just two days ago, president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton were prais
the more conservative part of his caucus, some very bad news. republicans don't have a wlost leverage. tax cuts expire whether without anybody doing anything. and republicans are going to end up yielding a lot more than they give -- than they get in the negotiations. and john boehner, as the chief negotiator is the man identified with that surrender. so he needs to put down a marker now that says to the right wheel of the caucus, hey, i'm with you. if it were up to me, 100%. i'm with you. and i am going to put it in writing. i'm completely in favor of doing all the things that would have happened if we won the election. however, we didn't win the election. and we have facing this fiscal cliff and it's scary. so i'm about to have to do things you don't like. but be assured that my heart is in the right place. >> role laan what about this? they voted for obama. but when you look at how many people cnn poll last week, 51% of this country oppose the health care bill. 42% favor it. maybe boehner is on to something. >> no, he's not. because frankly we got to go look at those numbers. remember, t
enough to make a deal. senator mark warner, the third wealthiest man of the senate, outfront on tax rates and whether the president needs to take a bigger role. >>> plus, the u.n. ambassador to the u.s. susan rice, admits the talking points she used after the benghazi attack were wrong. republicans call her answers troubling. >>> and a former mayor spent her life taking on thugs in her town. her fight and her life tonight are now over. let's go out front. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett "outfront" tonight, where in the world is president obama? it's been 11 days since he met with congressional leaders on the fiscal cliff. and with impending doom as a lot of people describe it, just 35 days away, key lawmakers say the president hasn't worked hard enough with them to broker a deal. >> rather than sitting down with lawmakers of both parties and working out an agreement, he's back on the campaign trail presumably with the same old talking points that we're all quite familiar with. >> well, now, as far as top democrats are concerned, things haven't been going so well since that no
hypothetically, what the present has asked for, to let the tax rates go up on the top brackets, it would run the government for a limited period of time. so the president really needs to tell us what his plan is. i'm increasingly pessimistic, not optimistic, because the president seems to be campaigning, rather than going anywhere and doing anything to get a deal. because if we don't get a deal, it will hurt a lot of people. >> are you saying that the way we're going now, we could actually go off the fiscal cliff? >> we don't know what the president has said he needs, because revenue is not enough to solve the problem. as you know, we have a trillion dollar annual deficit and this would not close that gap at all. so the president needs to come up with a plan and for better or worse going to require leadership. no member of the senate or the house is going to be able to do this, this is something the president has to do by himself and he can't do it on the campaign trail. >> let me ask you this because you wrote an op-ed today and you wrote about divided government about the deal. you said di
about health care and education and issues like that than they are concerned about taxes. what do you get from mitt romney? you get a campaign that's all about tax cuts rather than about the core kitchen table bread and butter issues. i have been saying that's a big mistake for a long time. now you have a lot of republicans who are catching up, who are getting it. it's about time. >> do you think, roland, they can get it and make up the ground they've lost? so many people are saying you've lost hispanics, you're never getting them back, you're done, there's no more gop. is that ridiculous? >> first of all, i have michael steele on my tv show on sunday and we talked about this year. the republican party has to listen to people. they can't just say well, this is where we stand, what we stand for, and we really don't want to hear what you have to say. you look at what the democrats did, look at what president obama did. they looked at five, six, seven, eight different issues in terms of being able to put together their coalition which was a winning coalition. the republican party often o
